Meet the Year 3 Students of the BD2BMI Program
I am currently a senior attending New York City College of Technology majoring in Biomedical Informatics. After completing my bachelor’s degree as the first generation in my family to graduate college, my goal is to apply for the Accelerated Nursing Program to become a Registered Nurse and eventually a Nurse Practitioner. I have always wanted to work in the medical field in hopes to make a difference in the world and to raise awareness of the current health issues we faced today. With my goal-driven, motivated, and determined nature, I want to help serve the underserved community. I would particularly like to serve my hometown in Guinea, Conakry someday where there is lack of resources within the healthcare system.
Technology has great and very significant contributions to the field of medicine. Scientists from different fields have been working diligently for many years researching to find effective treatments for different diseases. I believe I could also contribute to this fight with the right tools under my belt. I am very fortunate to have been chosen to partake in the Big Data to Biomedical Informatics Program and receive mentorship from the experts in this field; to deepen my understanding of bioinformatics and its usage and become more familiar with genomic data. My future career goal is to work with animal DNA; studying hereditary diseases using their DNA and preventing cell mutation.
As a senior currently obtaining my Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Informatics at New York City College of Technology, my educational path continues. Biomedical informatics is a growing field in science where I aim to continue my studies and seek to advance the use of biomedical data for scientific study, research information, problem solving and work on improving human health. I chose the Biomedical Informatics program with hopes that one day I would be able to participate in the discovery of something new.
Throughout my time at City Tech I’ve gained a clearer understanding of the possibilities that arise from being able to analyze and navigate large amounts of biological data. My past experiences and future ambitions have directed me in establishing career goals in the science field. In spite of that, I’m aware of the multitude of career or research options out there. I’m sure I will commit myself to either research, medicine, or software engineering.
After the completion of my undergraduate degree, I plan to work within the field and wish to land a job that makes me happy. Joining Big Data in Biomedical Informatics (BD2BMI) program will be a great challenge to accomplish and likely open more doors. I’m grateful to be given the opportunity to gain hands on experience, as well as aiding for future pathways. My mission is to learn more of what Big Data represents and how I can apply to it. With all that is going on in the world these days, I look forward in being a part of a research field that can greatly advance medicine and healthcare. Beyond all that, I hope to make valuable contributions in the future.
I am a senior in the Biomedical Informatics Program at the New York City College of Technology. Growing up I've always been a free-spirited child so I never limited myself to a particular job or capability. However, I've always been drawn to the medical field. Being a first-generation American with parents who emigrated from Mali, the idea of hard work up and keeping faith and hope alive was the recipe for success which was instilled in me at such a young age.
My career goal is to become a Physician Assistant. I believe that I will gain an abundance of beneficial information and experience in the medical field through the BD2BMI Program. Not only will the opportunity of working with the BD2BMI program help me excel in my academics, but it will shape me into becoming an even better Physician Assistant.
I am senior at New York City College of Technology, majoring in biomedical informatics. I have always been interested biology and my ultimate goal was to become a doctor. Soon enough I realized that although doctors play a big role in comforting and helping patients, other healthcare professionals also play an essential role in the matter. Ever since I enrolled in the biomedical informatics program, I started to grow an interest in the field, especially in bioinformatics. I was fascinated by the new information and knowledge I learned throughout the program. I am very fortunate City Tech gave me the opportunity to dive in and learn more about the different tools and technologies offered in the field. Whether I pursue my goal and become a doctor or work in the field as a bioinformatics scientist, all I want is to be involved in a project that will lead us to a better future.
I am a senior currently attending The New York City College of Technology, majoring in Biomedical Informatics. I have always been extremely passionate about science and helping people. I am very honored to work not only at City Tech, but with Weill Cornell with this amazing opportunity. Using this opportunity will allow me to apply for a Master’s Degree in Public Health where I can apply my knowledge of big data to further help the public, particularly with a focus on mental health.
Emmanuel C Dubuisson
I am currently a senior in the Biomedical Informatics program at New York City College of Technology, and I have a strong commitment to science, technology, and education. I believe education is a lifelong project. I see it as a tool that could enable me to develop a more accurate vision of a world that is constantly changing, and that is becoming more and more complex and interconnected. In addition, with the development of scientific technology, my community has gone from a few thousand people living next to me, in my city of birth, to the entire world.
I also believe that science is a way to have a lasting and positive impact on my community and I would like to become a research scientist in the biomedical field. As a researcher, I need to harness sharp data analytic skills. I anticipate that I will have to interpret sooner or later in my career huge amounts of structured and unstructured data that cannot be managed by traditional database systems. With this perspective, I believe the Big Data to Biomedical Informatics (BD2BMI) program offers a great opportunity to get accustomed to cutting edge technologies used to solve big data problems and benefit society as a whole.
I am currently enrolled in the Biomedical Informatics program at New York City College of Technology with a concentration in Bioinformatics. Since a young age, I have always been fascinated by the sciences. In particular, by the immune responses to autoantibodies that attack healthy cells. Suffering from a disability has increased my thirst for learning and to pursue higher education. In addition, working in the nursing department at hospitals over the course of several years has given me the opportunity to be versed in disciplines that include: electrophysiology, cardiac telemetry, primary care, ob-gyn, pediatrics, rheumatology, and orthopedic surgery.
During my studies at NYC College of Technology, I became fascinated with Bioinformatics because it combines both computer science and artificial intelligence to help create solutions and alternatives in all aspects of life. I am so excited to be part of the Big Data to Biomedical Informatics (BD2BMI) program working with Dr. Giannopoulou, in collaboration with Weill Cornell. My goal is to learn a vast amount of knowledge and skillsets necessary to pursue an MD/PHD program. My goal is to gain the research skills needed to analyze autoimmune diseases in communities that lack resources. I am very humbled to be given this opportunity to be a part of something that can drive my career further in this field of study.
I am a senior at The New York City College of Technology, pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Informatics. The ability to combine my interests in biology and computer science in a rapidly evolving field such as bioinformatics has been a wonderful opportunity. My research interests lie in the epidemiological implications of advancements in computational genomics. I am looking forward to beginning the BD2BMI program and gaining invaluable hands on experience in analyzing big data. After graduation, I would like to put the knowledge gained during this program and academic career to use and work as a bioinformatician while pursuing a master’s degree in bioinformatics or computational biology.
